I have a couple of concerns which I think a few of you are overlooking. I doesn't say anywhere that the 'START' and 'GOAL' points are able to be created WITHOUT a smartphone.

    If you read all of the descriptions, it just shows how you have to 'tap' on the screen of your smart phone to create routes. I'm a bit worries that there is some wordsmithing going on on Casio's behalf because so far it seems really unclear. It just talks about the GOAL destination when on the topic of GPS.

    If the watch is unable to simply begin GPS tracking and then 'trackback' to where I started without a phone, then I'm out. As much as I want to buy it, I have a Suunto that doesn't need a smartphone.

    What does everyone think?
    I think the watch will be a bit more autonomous when it comes to Navigating.

    Seems like they are not going to put multiband into their GPS watches because it wouldn’t make a lick of sense.

    And yet....they touted the GPW-1000 as "the world's first" GPS/Radio hybrid... And also advertised the MRG-G1000s as GPS/Radio hybrids.

    I guess they feel now that they've "been there, done that." But really, if they are using Bluetooth plus GPS, I think that's enough redundancy. Not much need for Multiband with that setup.

    the next new RANGMAN GPR-B1000 ===>800$ ?

    This week I reserved a GPR-B1000-1B (green strap) model at the NYC boutique. They were given a demo of some sort, and were able to confirm that the displays were the same on both models, the -1B and the -1. I had thought that one of them might be a blue display, the other black. But that was just something I wondered after seeing lots of photos and videos. I wanted a black display. So I reserved the -1B.

    Their ETA is late March/early April.

    So does that mean autorepeat/ seconds-programmable timers will make a return? :)
    This looks like a pretty sweet upgrade if coordinates can be done sans phone etc.

    I am curious to know if Casio is likely to bring the solar assisted GPS setup to the Protrek line given the WSD-F20 already exists (pretty useless in my opinion). I sure hope so. I can imagine a larger screen and smaller case size. I see this as having a far better battery solution than the WSD-F20. What do you folks think?

    I think that I hope that transparent solar panels will soon find their way into our watches. I also hope that Casio will be a pioneer in that technology.
